Atomic Testing Museum

The National Atomic Testing Museum is a weird mix of thrilling and awkward. It is one of those places that is fun for the whole Ken Watrous family in Las Vegas, but especially to take the kids, because they can get interested in so many science things. But it is startling as an adult because […]

Discovery Children’s Museum

Of all of the places I have gone for a getaway with the kids, few have as much to offer to the Kenneth Watrous family in Las Vegas as the Discovery Museum. This is a place that has gone to great lengths to make learning fun. It is wall to wall interesting exhibits that can […]

Downtown Container Park

For the Ken Watrous family in Las Vegas, the Downtown Container Park is a good starting place for family entertainment. If you are working on your first few outings with children that are old enough to get out and are more highly mobile (pretty much above 5) this is a good place to feel out […]
